    They’ll be back next year
    I’m not a great author, but my story is simple, it is about one of the greatest places I have been in America: Hodgenville, Ky.

    My wife Jennifer and I were on our way home from a family vacation in North Dakota. We were able to make a little detour and had read about the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. After a really enjoyable two days on the trail it was once again time to head for home.

    Thank you, Joel Ray, for the memories
    I had intentions of writing long before, things are rushing here. Anyhow, I want Joel Ray to know I appreciated the article he (interviewed for) in the paper (Buffalo was a little bit Mayberry by Ron Benningfield in the July 31 issue). It brought many memories and especially the one about Mrs. Ewing the telephone operator there, who so happened to be my mother.

    Racing to Disney
    The Business and Technology students at LaRue County High School who are traveling to Walt Disney World would like to say thank you to our sponsors and everyone who participated in the Taking Care of Business 5k on Sept. 14.

    Marshall Metcalf was the overall male winner; Misty Bivens was the overall female winner.

  • Frankfort Report

    This past week’s priority in Frankfort was redistricting as the state legislature fulfilled its Constitutional duty of redrawing voting districts according to the U.S. Census population. I am pleased the Senate passed a fair plan that had bipartisan support.  

    The district I serve, District 5, is now comprised of Breckinridge, Edmonson, Grayson, Hart, LaRue and Meade Counties. Keep in mind, the federal court still has to rule on the constitutionality of both the Senate and the House maps, but the Senate is confident its map will pass constitutional scrutiny.

    Blood drive draws 33 volunteers

    Thank you to the 33 individuals who volunteered to give blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. We had 28 units.

    Beverly Kelly received a three-gallon American Red Cross pin for her faithful donations.

    Thanks to the volunteers who assisted with the drive – Becky Loyall and Jean Hornback. Thanks to the Sweet Shoppe for the tray of fudge.

    The community blood drive is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.

    The next blood drive is Oct. 8.

    Out with good ol’ boy mentality
    I have read Steve LaRue’s letter to the editor several times and no matter how many times I read it I continue to be offended by it. What I am getting from this letter is that the City of Hodgenville should go by “The Good Ol’ Boy Mentality.”

    Why do people think they should be exempt from city ordinances? It’s OK for other people – but don’t expect me to abide by it?

    Upton misses the ‘Exchange’

    Thank you so much for the article in last week’s paper on Upton. I was disappointed that the Farmer’s Telephone Co. was not mentioned. It was indeed the hub of the town. It was one of the last, if not the last, “hand cranked” systems in the state of Kentucky.

    Turn everyone’s water back on
    There is a bully mentality at City Hall that has become unacceptable.

    My father, Jim LaRue, has had his water on Greensburg Street turned off by the City in the last three months not once but twice for alleged non-payment.

    In both instances, my father (who is very good with numbers) paid his bill on time via check. Both times, he was told by a city employee his check had not cleared. Interestingly, the other bills he paid the same day, via check, did clear.

  • Letter to the Editor

    I have followed, with interest, the developments surrounding the so-called Bluegrass pipeline and still, for the life of me cannot figure out where the long term benefit is for the residents along the proposed route of Kentucky (LaRue, Nelson, Hardin, Anderson, Woodford, Scott and Franklin counties).

    I ask you, is it really worth the offered price to have your land disturbed for construction and to be at the mercy of the pipeline for any projects where ground is broken?
